Weekly Bulletins and Parish News

The weekly bulletin is an integral part of the worship service and provides both members and guests a guide to the liturgy of the worship service along with the music and prayers. It also serves to inform the membership of the ongoing and future events and outreach work of St. John’s Church.

Stringer Garden Project

Many of you may have noticed the clearing of the garden area outside of Gregory Hall, needed after the gas line repair and drainage and fountain issues. But some of you will not be aware of the significance of the Stringer Garden to our church. In May 2004, following a 9:00 Sunday service, the Stringer Family (Ken, Sarah and Matt) were involved in an accident at the Elizabeth Boulevard and Eighth Avenue intersection which resulted in Ken’s death three days later.

Their family was an integral part of our church with Ken serving on the Vestry and as head of the Outreach Committee. The loss of him to his family, friends, colleagues and to his church family was enormous and his death was a pivotal point in the growth of St. John’s Church. We came together with a renewed sense of purpose and activity which continues to this day. The Garden was implemented in Ken’s memory by a member of the church at that time.

The much needed refurbishment of the Stringer Garden is a project which will need funding and we are asking for donations to this project from the parish. The updated design for the area has been completed by Michael Pavlovsky and the St. John’s Foundation has pledged a matching grant for $20,000 of the project. You can donate by check (please note Stringer Garden Project) or online on our website from the Give – Donate Online and then selecting the Fund Stringer Garden Project in the drop-down menu.

Please help us to continue honoring the memory of Ken Stringer and all those who in life and death have blessed St. John’s Church.

Fr. Sam Wilgus

Parishioners of St. John’s:

Thank you for your patience as we have completed a long and in-depth process to issue a call for the next rector of St. John’s Anglican Church.

I am pleased to announce that Fr. Sam Wilgus, Rector of St. Francis of Assisi Willow Park, has accepted our call to the Rector of St. John’s Anglican Church.  He will join us for service beginning Sunday, February 11, 2024. 

Fr. Wilgus grew up in Dallas attending Park Cities Baptist Church.  He graduated from Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois with a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Bible and Theology.  It was during his college years that he began attending Anglican services.  Perceiving a call to ministry, he entered Nashotah House Theological Seminary graduating with a Master of Divinity.

Fr. Wilgus was ordained to the Diaconate at All Souls Anglican Church and ordained to the priesthood at St. John’s Church, Quincy, Illinois.  He was a Cathedral Curate Youth Director at St. John’s Church Diocese of Quincy.  Looking for an opportunity to move back to the metroplex, he accepted the position of Associate Priest at St. Andrew’s Church in Fort Worth. 

In June of 2020, he accepted a call to be Rector of St. Francis of Assisi in Willow Park.  Fr. Wilgus is active in our diocese, serving on the Committee for Church Revitalization.  He also serves as Secretary and member of the Commission on Ministry.  He is also a member of the Board of Managers for Camp Crucis.  He has also begun Postulancy for becoming a Tertiary in the Franciscan Order of Divine Compassion, an Orthodox Anglican Franciscan religious order.

Fr. Sam is married, and he and his wife Katy have three children: Dottie age 6, Jack age 4, and Molly age 1.  Katy has been very active at St. Francis and is a true asset to Fr. Wilgus’ ministry.  Currently, they reside in Weatherford, but will relocate to our parish neighborhood.  You will find Fr. Wilgus to be a man of deep faith with a passion for pastoral care, energetic and delighted at the opportunity to be Rector of our parish.

Special thanks to Fr. Moseley for his service as Interim Priest in Charge.  He has skillfully guided us through this period of transition.

Our Mission

The mission of St. John’s is to grow in Christ. We believe that being a Christian is committing oneself to a certain way of life. Our mission is to invite people to participate in the fullness of this life by opening new doors of entry into the church and teaching people what it means to be disciples of Jesus. Our videos have been developed to give you a good sense of how we worship, what we believe about God and His church, about being a Christian in today’s culture, what the Bible says, the life of grace, our parish life, and so much more. Enjoy, and may God richly bless you.
